Contest Update: Win Tickets to Kentucky Derby Party at Eleven Madison Park

On Saturday, May 2, Esquire and Eleven Madison Park are hosting a Kentucky Derby celebration at the restaurant from 3-7pm. Last week, we tried to give away four tickets to the event (retail price, $250), but as the deadline approaches and only one decent submission has hit the inbox, it's clear it's time to switch up our strategy. So, instead of rewriting all the lyrics to My Old Kentucky Home to relate to the NYC restaurant scene, just rewrite the chorus. Send all submissions to by the end of the weekend. To inspire you, our one and only submission:

The sun shines bright on my old NYC home
Tis summer, the Hamptons are gay
Central Park’s ripe and the great lawn’s in bloom
While the Homeless make music all the day
The Tourists give them change more and more
All merry, all happy and bright
By 'n by people come a-knocking at A60’s door
Then my old NYC home good night

Sleep no more, my city
Oh, sleep no more, today
We will sing one song for the old NYC home
For the old New York home far away.

They hunt still more for the women in Soho,
On broadway, Prince and at Bloomie’s door,
They shop no more by the glimmer of the moon,
On the bench by that tourist store.
The day goes by like a shadow o'er the heart,
With sorrow where all was delight.
The time has come when the ladies have to part,
Then my old New York home, good night.

The head must bow and the back will have to bend,
Wherever the homeless may go
A few more days and the brunch party will end,
In the MPD where B&T may show.
A few more days for to tote the Ed Hardy Clothes,
No matter, 'twill never be right
A few more days till we totter on the road,
Then my old New York home, good night.
